stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I always said stars don't matter. The stars are like the points on Whose Line.
could this be a cruel ND Joke for all the teo dissing we have been doing ?
Its on the internet...so its real
What are things that Manti Te'o says?
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
I think all the super duper excitement over Rodney Davis is the reason Twitter's been down today.
Guy has a picture of Michigan, MSU, Nebreska, Syracuse and Ball State letters on his twitter page.
Gotta love those Maize colored letters.
"Oh no, no, I'm not in the group yet. No, I'm afraid I just blue myself."
got together and decided he was so good, he wasn't allowed to play football at the high school level anymore.
This must be the coaches response to losing out on Treadwell......
Given the timing of his offer, he must be so good..but i wonder just like you guys why no data per rivlas, scout....
I dont want him. Go away.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.
Is this real life?
this is just fantasy.
John Navarre, John Navarre, he is John Navarre
(to the tune of Jingle, Bells)
I''m caught in a landslide....
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
this is interesting.... 0_o
I don't think he knows you have to have a scholarship offer to commit.
I would also like to commit?
Well put our halves together.
Bo' Money Bo' Problems
Class of 2014, not this year's class
something is seriously wrong
Maybe the coaching staff got hammered tonight???
Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica
Its Dantonio, he's laying in the weeds waiting to tag Rodney with a schollie
Brady Hoke next level recruiting tactics - build fake recruit profile, commit fake recruit to Michigan, watch Dantonio burn scholarships on fake recruit.
What was phase 2?
"I think Hoke has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start."
What WAS phase 2? Well ... phase 1 was collect underpants.
C'mon guys..Y'all dont know Rodney ? Rodney Davis...stop playin..its Rodney
I can't quite place it, but I feel like one of the other Michigan athletes tweeted that volleyball picture just the other day...

With Michigan in the Final Four. This looks like a match my family attended. Bunch of the basketball guys were there. All the freshman and THJ, iirc.
Ended a month ago! He probably is just showing a picture of Manti's girlfriend!
He is saying it's a half scholarship, and he will be working out for the coaches next week.
Not too sure what a half scholarship really means ... they gonna give the other half to someone else?
counts as a full scholarship, as it's deemed a "head count" sport. Sports like hockey and softball are called "equivalency sports" and split a given number of scholarships amongst a higher limit (or no limit) of athletes.
I'm not sure about that. Ganted its D2, but I know schools like Grand Valley, Wayne State, Ferris State, have fewer scholarships to give, so they compensate by breaking up the scholarships and giving out only partial ones. They routinly have classes over 25-27 kids, all of which are receiving some kind of scholarship. Same thing for other sports; I was offered a partial scholarship to run cross country at the D2 level. I don't see how it would be different at the D1 level unless there is a special rule for football, which wouldn't surprise me.
Sorry, I wasn't thinking of the lower football levels (since it wouldn't apply to M). FCS is an equivalency sport and gets 63 scholarships split 85 ways, for example. D2 gets 36 scholarships, and it looks like no overall limit. For Mens XC/Track, D1 and D2 allow 12.6 scholarships split up any way the coach wants to do it. On the other hand, MBB, WBB, FBS Football, W Gymnastics, W Tennis and W (indoor) Volleyball can't split up scholarships and do full rides up to a hard limit, such as 85 for FBS Football.
Here's a Wikipedia link for Division 1; "Scholarship Limits by Sport" is the relevant headline, with FCS under Division 1 Equivalency. This PDF has scholarship rules from D1, D2 and NAIA.
Sweet, thanks for the clarification.
Just from a quick search on mgoblue.com, it says the volleyball season ended in December... How could he have been at the volleyball game on his visit today? BUSTED
Edit: Dammit beaten by 2 min
Yep, and the Illinois game that picture is from was on Oct. 10. Yeeesh, this looks verrrrry suspect.
The volleyball photo that he posted on his twitter today, is actually from Mitch McGary's instagram 14 weeks ago
Great find for a first post. Hopefully the rest of your posts are just as good as this one.

Dual QB Statistical Analysis
I threw both of you five points. Him for the cool first post and you for being encouraging to a new guy (or gal) because it's something that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Valid for one year; don't spend them all in one place.
Now to figure out what these points do
You're in for a surprise after another ninety-three of them, though.
what the heck is a half schlarship
BleedBlue did a quick interview with him, and he said it's a half scholarship.
I think that is the first time I've seen the name.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
Half scholarship includes tuition, books, McDonald's coupons and a pup tent.
Cool. Now can you tell us all what a "half schlarship" is?
I keed, I keed.
Special Teams means special times!
